A Prickly Passion Lips Of Faith Offering

A new one for New Belgium Brewing’ s Lips Of Faith series – “Prickly Passion Saison”.  The saison makes use of a French yeast, and prickly pear fruit and passion fruit.  The prickly pear (seen below) grows on a cactus, with a flavor described somewhere between bubblegum and watermelon.   Widmer featured it in their Prickly Pear Braggot a little over a year ago.

Peter Picked a prickly pear and paired it with a passion fruit.  “Perfect! Pitch It In!” He proclaimed.  Now we have this pleasing prickly passion saison brewed with fruit juices and French saison yeast to our brewmasters picking.
